The catalog presents the general and academic regulations, programs of study, entrance requirements, and course offerings of the university. It is important to note that the catalog represents the inventory of courses, not all of which are necessarily offered in any given semester. Additionally, the catalog provides information about student life and services, and campus resources and facilities. It is a historical record used for re-accreditation and institutional research purposes.
As the de facto agreement between students and the university, the catalog provides the binding policies and requirements in force at the time of a student’s matriculation. Every student is held responsible for knowledge of the regulations and information contained in the catalog, as well as for changes promulgated by the university.
